La Laguna holidays take you to an interesting town located in the north east of Tenerife. The full name of the town is San Cristobal de la Laguna and it dates from 1496. Until 1723 it was the original capital and is the only university town in the whole of the Canary Islands. The atmosphere is very different from that found in coastal resorts. La Laguna is a good choice if you are looking for a cultural city break. The narrow streets of the old quarter are a World Heritage Site. It is a colourful town with many fine churches and buildings. The north east of the island has the very fertile Aquere Valley which is strewn with banana and palm plantations, olive groves and vineyards. The mountains and deep gorges in the area attract walkers as there are many marked trails for them to follow. Low cost La Laguna holidays mainly attract couples and those who enjoy hiking in the great outdoors.
Hotels and apartments provide a range of accommodation that caters for most budgets. Standards are high and you will always receive a warm and friendly welcome as well as attentive service. The restaurants and bars serve a variety of dishes that cater for even the most conservative of British palates. If this is your first trip to the Canary Islands and you wish to sample the local cuisine, order tapas and receive bite-sized portions of a variety of dishes, ideal for tasting. Local wines are inexpensive and pleasing to the palate. As you'd expect in a university town, nightlife is a lively affair with many venues partying through the night. Shopping in the town is good and there is a regular farmer's market. There is also a craft market on Sundays. For a greater variety of goods, take a trip to the capital, Santa Cruz.
Being in the Canary Islands, La Laguna holidays can be taken at any time of year. The winters are pleasantly mild and the summers are never uncomfortably hot. Several low cost airlines fly direct from regional airports to Tenerife North. You can check on the Cheekytrip website to see if there are holidays from your local airport. The resort is only a couple of miles from the airport so transfers are very short.
